It’s not a secret that women HR professionals are outnumbering men.
According to the Washington-based Office of Personnel Management, women held just 30 percent of federal government HR jobs in 1969. By 1988, that number had more than doubled, soaring to 71 percent.
8. Financial specialists
The finance sector contains the most percentage of women and offers an average salary that is 10 percent below the national average.
It’s a trend that’s been four decades in the making and is visible in both the private and public sectors.
